I have started the embroidery classes about 6 to 8 years back. My mentor is Mrs Mienkie Olivier. We have classes every 2 weeks and we enter our pieces at the Bloem Show every year. My mentor designs a pattern for each of her students, thus there is no duplicates.
I have done blackwork, Chinese chainstitch and freestyle work of which I enjoy the freestyle work the most.
The embroidery work helps me to relax and the end result is always a success.
